MGR/Troll's review"Ibanez 1978 MC500 Musician"

Ibanez MC500
I found this guitar used at Guitar Center in 1994. Love at first site. She was a steal at $500

EVERYTHING! Beautiful wood, excellent craftsmanship. It just feels good in your hands. plays like a dream & any tone you want with the dual humbuckers with coil split/series/parallel switches and a 3 band active EQ.(+ master volume & tone)
Kahler trem. locking tuners.

Nothing. Other than they are under rated.This is a very fine instrument. Based on a custom job Ibanez did for Jerry Garcia.

Excellent work. 7 ply neck thru design with alternating strips of walnut & maple. Ebony fretboard with 24 frets & abalone dot inlay. Mahogany body with beautiful ash top and back. You should see it.
Very heavy wood, breaks your back but sustains for days.

Buy one if you can find one. Great for vintage tone(and then some)Made at a period in time when Ibanez was done with their "lawsuit" copy models, but trying to create something innovative & different, while competing with the quality standards of the top manufacturers that they were just sued by.
